Flu-Related Deaths Reported In Tarrant County

Monroe County reports first flu death of season

The Ohio Department of Health has released that just under 4,000 cases of flu related hospitalizations have been reported in Ohio since October.

Byrne says wash your hands to keep from catching the flu.

Locally, the KFL&A Public Health Unit says the 44 confirmed cases reported since September is on par with most years.

People getting the flu from the vaccine is a misconception, de Lota said. If you have symptoms of influenza, contact your health care provider promptly to find out if antiviral treatment is needed.

It said, in case of mild fever with sore throat with or without bodyache, headache, diarrhoea and vomiting, the patient neither requires Oseltamivir nor testing.

"This is a good time to make sure that we are doing everything we can from an infection and prevention standpoint to cut down on transmission of the flu", said Phoebe's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Steve Kitchen.

Ruth Gratton, manager of infectious diseases at the health unit, said that number is not unusual for this time of year.

Health officials: 13 people have died from the flu this season
Paul Twomey, medical director for Yorkshire and the Humber, said: "It's not too late to get your flu vaccination". In Knox County, the health department offers free flu shots at all three of its locations, Monday through Friday.

"Coming to the ER is perfectly fine, but there's always other places that you can go - primary care, doctor's office, and urgent care are always great options, and obviously if you're feeling really sick, you should come to the ER to get checked out", said Dr. Sampath Medepalli, a physician for Mercy Health St. Rita's.

"There's still time for every person who's six months of age or older in Los Angeles County to still receive the flu vaccine, but time is short and we hope you get vaccinated soon if you haven't", he said.

Specifically, cases of H3N2, a strain of influenza A, are high.

"It's safe to say that we are now experiencing a flu outbreak and these three voluntarily reported flu-related deaths reflect that", said Chief Epidemiologist Russell Jones.

Although children are more susceptible to serious illness from H3N2 than the general population, they are also particularly vulnerable to the "B" strain, possibly due to their lack of previous exposure, she said.

"We ask that people educate themselves regarding when to come to the emergency room and when to stay home", Rohler said. The H3N2 flu virus that is causing the problem this year has hit hard at the elderly and very young.
